For more than 100 years, the Busch family’s designs have helped shape how tenants think of their buildings.

I. Buss & Allan Uniform, a company founded in 1892, designs building staff uniforms for some of the city’s most well-known real estate companies, including the Durst Organization, Solow Building Company, Jack Resnick & Sons, Douglas Elliman and other major property managers. The company is even responsible for the burgundy suits that greet visitors at the top of the Empire State Building.

CEO Jennifer Busch is the fourth generation of the Busch family to run the business, which operates out of a second-floor manufacturing space on 36th Street in Midtown. She also has her own clothing line, Pipenn.
